Show off your goodies, part I

By goodies, I mean your desserts. Macaroons and candied fruits, more specifically. You're going to need something attractive to display your confections on, and tiered serving trays do just that. These were in any well-appointed home in the 18th century, and they're a good investment: they do their thing while also serving as a work of art. So for your next party, check out these food stands:24" Atlantis Food Stand / Dessert Tray - 3 Tiers
This stainless steel, silver-finished dessert stand defines elegance. Just think of the food arrangements you could do with this. While it's a bit pricey at $225, it really is a great piece. You can buy it here at a website called Sarah's Sweet Fountains. Did I mention this website also sells some neat-looking fondue items?Tiered Pedestal Serving Plates-set of 3
Not only is this dessert stand a steal at $19.99, it's a two-in-one kind of thing: the 3 glass stands are stackable, so you can stack them on top of each other for a tiered-stand, or use one by itself as a simple yet chic cake stand. Buy it online at Target.

If either of these don't suit your fancy, you can find tons of serving stands in various styles on Ebay. From modern to vintage, you're sure to find something you like there. Once you get your serving stand(s), pile on the goodies and show 'em off!

Your comments and/or suggestions are appreciated=)
